Welcome to Healthcaremagic.

The pain and the pressure you are feeling could be due to the fluid in the pleural cavity.This fluid usually accumulates when there are underlying paranchymal conditions in the lungs.

Most of times the fluid gets reabsorbed on own and need no intervention and when it is severe then there would be need for its removal from there by needle aspiration.

Wish you good health.
